31. Star Wars Rogue Squadron 2: Rogue Leader (last year 38), first impression 7.5, replay 9, technical 8
Pros: It brings all the biggest space-battle moments of the original trilogy to life brilliantly, adding in some necessary extra action in some cases (like Yavin and Hoth), and then throwing in some fun new locales for good measure, it's space combat simulation that strikes the right balance between being too "sim" or too "arcade" while still leaning on the arcade side of the fence. Bonus missions and tons of different, quite balanced fighters help out too.
Cons: Difficulty spikes in some cases, like when you enter a Star Destroyer's kill-zone and get torn up in a matter of seconds. Some missions are a bit obtuse when you first start playing the game (hurts first impression score)
Monster Hunter: pissing me off since 2010.
